Valdez, Robert Duane

Robert Duane Valdez of Carrollton, Texas passed away on Saturday, December 24, 2016 at the age of 45.

Duane was very talented and skilled. He loved to cook for his family and friends and had a true servants heart. He was a skilled hunter and fisherman. One of his greatest desires was to meet Jeremy Wade who hunts “monster fish”, but at least their were friends on Facebook. He completely restored the inside of the house he and Francis bought last year and just completed building his dream workshop at his home.

He will be missed more than words could ever convey.

To the Bannister and the Valdez Families, our sincerest condolences on the loss of Duane. Our prayers are with each of you as you go through this difficult time. We have known the Valdezes for many many years. Duane went home too soon at a young age. We may never understand why.
